Ape Fears

Fools: not hard to spot, stealing

dreams from arms, an absence

of light in base of eye, soft gums,

sharp of teeth, well-fed and red,

blood cells rapid through veins,

bone deep, unchanged for

millennia, for kids, with

puppets they preach,

teaching new phrases like

“private sector” and

“legitimate rape”

—such,

the demands we can’t possibly meet.
